About us

Collective is a programme run by Camden Town Unlimited, the Business Improvement District for Camden Town and is funded by the Council and the MRF.

 

There are three elements to the programme:

·         Unique hot-desking space for creative industry start-ups

·         Available high street units for pop-up shops

·         Work placement and training opportunities

The Hub

The incubator hub is a converted warehouse above a famous art gallery offering free desk space to new companies and individuals in the creative industries. With 20 businesses already signed up we’ll soon be expanding Collective Hubs into two additional spaces over the next two years. We’re soon to offer an ongoing programme of events from networking evenings to presentations, launches and shows. We have moving walls, desks and platforms so the rooms can be configured into almost any space! We also run a series of seminars and mentoring events specifically designed for troubleshooting in the early days of business so whether you’re confused about tax or you’re not sure how to go to market in your specific sector, we provide bespoke sessions and keep in tune with our members’ needs.

Pop-ups

 We have access to several empty shop spaces which will be available to young creatives for FREE as pop-ups for a period of up to three months. We are securing long term leases on a cluster of units on lower Camden High Street and they will be newly fitted out giving emerging fashion, arts, crafts, design and other creative students and young businesses access to empty shops, to run events, and learn about retail & business development. Camden Town is at the heart of London’s creative community and we want to encourage new creative businesses and ideas to be showcased here. We are looking for group or individual proposals from inspiring people who can take over and manage the space for a day, a week, or any period of up to a 3 months.

Fellowships

We’re looking for young people with creative talents and skills who are interested in expanding their experience, contacts and networks with creative businesses in Camden. We’re working with some of the smallest and some of the largest companies in the creative industries in London – right here and there’s an abundance of work and project collaboration available. We support Fellows throughout the process of negotiating work and building up skills through specific workshops hosted at the Hub. We’re just as keen to help budding entrepreneurs realise their ideas - We’ve got space, contacts, like-minded people and the time to help at this crucial stage of set-up.
